UN Climate Panel: Time is running out

Never before have so many people done so much to limit greenhouse gas emissions. Still, time is running out for the 1.5-degree target. There is technology, enough capital and a lot of political will, but the pace must increase on all fronts if we are to avoid dangerous climate change, shows a new report from the UN Climate Panel.

CICERO researchers contributing to the IPCC’s Sixth Assessment Report

Researchers from CICERO are contributing to the world's most prominent assessment of climate knowledge in areas such as regional impact, investment and finance, political science, climate scenarios and atmospheric sciences.

Strengthening the climate change scenario framework

Over the past decade, the climate change research community developed a scenario framework that combines alternative futures of climate and society to facilitate integrated research and consistent assessment to inform policy. An international team of researchers assessed how well this framework is working and what challenges it faces.

IPCC report shows global warming threatens global food security

The latest report by the UN climate panel concludes that unless we cut emissions in all sectors now, the result will be irreparable loss of land-based ecosystem functions and services, and this could put global food security at risk.

New hopes for limiting warming to 1.5°C

Significant emission reductions are required if we are to achieve one of the key goals of the Paris Agreement, and limit the increase in global average temperatures to 1.5°C; a new Oxford University partnership warns.

Well below 2°C

The Paris Agreement calls to hold the increase in the global average temperature to “well below 2°C”. What on earth does that mean?
